Mars Colony is a society-building framework that can be replicated on every blockchain for native users of that blockchain. The first cycle started on Harmony, and the second cycle will begin on Polygon soon. Each blockchain's planet will be environmentally unique, with its own topography, weather, resources, and lifeforms. Linking all colonies for inter-chain play will create a diverse and resilient Colony and economy.
Stage 1: Mint land plots
In this stage, Architects mint their 21,000 land plots and begin generating CLNY token. This inflationary stage ensures there is enough CLNY in circulation for the game to function well.
The funds users pay to mint their land are used to create the development treasury for the colony, which is managed by the core dev team until the colony DAO is launched, at which point it becomes fully community-governed.
A new supply of CLNY is created for each chain's colony, because that colony will need a full supply for itself. The inflationary aspect of this first stage decreases in intensity the more colonies exist, and each inflation stage will eventually become deflationary with full utility in-game leading to excessive burns of the token. The total supply of CLNY is 144,800,000 per blockchain.
Stage 2: Mint avatars
Once enough CLNY has been minted (roughly 30-45 days, depending on upgrade speeds) and anyone can buy from pools in the SpaceXchange, the first batch of playable avatars will be minted.
As most of the CLNY used to mint avatars is burned, a large deflationary event takes place in this stage.
Stage 3: Begin missions
After avatars have been minted, Explorers can begin missions and the Colony can begin to grow and progress. All other features can then be added, and the cycle repeated on another blockchain. Because the game includes an ever-increasing variety of ways to use (burn) CLNY, this stage begins the transition to more consistent deflation.
Because the cycle takes time to generate enough CLNY, a new cycle can begin before the previous one has finished. In the future, every blockchain will be bridged together via their Colonies, and Colonists can perform missions, travel, and trade between colonies on other chains.
